My research interest lies in the isotopic geochemical evolution of the Earth's lithosphere during different times, with application to their tectonic history. I am using igneous rocks as a tool, studying from multiple views, including isotope geochemistry, geochronology, and paleomagnetism. Early studies focused on orogenies of different times: Paleoproterozoic of Central Africa, Paleo–Mesozoic of Central Asia, and Meso–Cenozoic of NE Asia.
